Quotable Quotes:

"Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing ever happened."

"(On reuniting with his ex-The Partridge Family (1970), series' star/real-life stepmother, Shirley Jones, who was asked to guest-star in Ruby & the Rockits (2009)): We paid her a lot of money. She is a wonderful actress. People forget she won an Academy Award. When I was young, she taught me a lot how to deal with the pressure and the fame, because she became a star when she was 18. I was 19." (IMDB)

"I feel she believed she knew what they had in their pockets and that they came from an honest conviction, and that she wasn't a nosy parker in this situation."

"When you win, say nothing, when you lose, say less."

"If we open a quarrel between the past and the present, we shall find we have lost the future. "

"It was such a sad day when David Cassidy died. (V)"

"David Cassidy may have been a favorite boy on the TV show "Charmed," but his life was far from perfect. He was born in the small town of Hope, Mississippi, in 1951, and was abandoned by his parents when he was just a baby. Cassidy grew up in a poverty-ridden neighborhood, which made him a risk taker and a rebel. When he was just 17, he reformatted his bike to take on the chaos of the inner city and then took on the mundanes of music industry. He was luckier than most, but he also faced the realities of life in the music business. Cassidy died of a heart attack at the age of 45 while on tour in Japan. (V)"

"David Cassidy was a true icon in the entertainment industry, leaving behind a lasting legacy of talent, passion, and charisma that will continue to inspire generations to come. (V)"
